From mountains to Hollywood, one woman has done it all
Baxter native hasn’t let cancer stop her from living her life
Hanging out with country music superstar Eric Church, posing for photos on the red carpet, sight-seeing in Hollywood, shopping on Rodeo Drive and going to the Grammy Awards would be considered astonishing experiences for the average person. But for Baxter native Lynnette Richey, who is currently battling cancer for the fifth time in 10 years, her favorite moment of the trip was something completely unexpected.
“My son, his favorite car is the Bugatti, and I had never ever heard of this Bugatti car before ever,” Richey said jokingly. “And we saw that kind of car on Rodeo Drive. So I had to take a picture of it and send it to him. That was a highlight.”
This is a woman who has climbed to the base camp of Mt. Everest, who helped organize her own “Cancer Smancer” Bike Ride Fundraiser and who still works full time for the American Cancer Society, even while continually battling the disease herself. The fact that her most memorable moment in this once-in-a-lifetime trip was snapping a picture for her son tells about her.
